Using MicroStation V8i (SELECTseries 3).
I have a CAD DWG file that has an XREF attached, and a paperspace created. MS is failing to open the DWG as an DGN. I suspect it has to do something with it having these things.
How do you open a DWG as a DGN in MS and maintain the XREF attachment and paperspace layout?
Have you check which version of DWG file you are trying to import and whether your version on V8i SS3 can import it?
currently using OBD 10.09.01.38
Sorry for late response Ian; the DWG is a 2018 DWG file. MS can import the individual XREF files it was created from, but not the file with all the XREFs in it; with formatted paperspace, etc.

I am not quite sure, but I think MicroStation V8i (SELECTseries 3) (it's not clear what SS3 Update you use) supported something like DWG 2013. Support for R2016 was added to V8i SS3 and SS4 as a separate download of newer RealDWG libraries.
DWG 2018 is supported from MicroStation CONNECT Edition Update 7.
